Stretch Marks • Scars • Areola • Tricho Pigmentation

Stretch Mark Revision

Microneedling improves the colour and texture of stretch marks and makes them blend with the surrounding skin. it also reduces the width and indentation of stretch marks. The microneelding technique involves a series of tiny, very fine needles that are passed over the skin, which trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis as the skin begins to naturally repair itself. These micro-openings stimulate the production of collagen, the scaffolding under the skin, which then improves the appearance of stretch marks. Repeat treatments are recommended every 4 – 6 weeks.

Scar Relaxation

Non-surgical scar relaxation/revision uses advanced needling techniques to reduce the appearance of scars. Old scar tissue fibres deep within the skin are released when the skin tissue is punctured with microneedles. The treatment repairs the skin naturally. With time, new collagen and elastin fibres are produced, softening scars, generating new skin cells and enhancing blood supply. Results can be seen in as little as a few weeks with dramatic improvement of scars.

Areola Pigmentation

A beautiful breast stands for femininity, this is why after breast surgery many women loose their self confidence. Once surgery is complete and the breast is healed, we can perform areola pigmentation. Areola pigmentation involves the effect of an artistically represented nipple. We select the correct colours to match your skin tone, perform specific measurements and then create a medical pigmented areola, helping women regain their self-confidence and quality of life.

Tricho Pigmentation

The contemporary treatment for hair loss, fine hair and baldness. The word “tricho” comes from ancient Greek meaning hair. Tricho pigmentation is an inexpensive alternative to hair transplantation. In this method tiny dots or short hairs are pigmented on the scalp, creating an optical illusion of hair. We match the colour according to your skin tone and hair colour, creating a harmonious effect where the hair appears thicker, yet natural looking.

Areas for Tricho Application:

  • Hair loss (alopecia)
  • Accident – scarring
